Don't forget to check the fit of the door seals. The yard car might have tighter fitting, less worn, less shrunk seals...

I've got a "Primo" set of 4 door seals but they wouldn't be cheap. They're almost new condition. Black rubber seals with the Light Taupe interior sections that match the headliner. This is what you'd have in a 300m Special with Light Taupe/Dark Slate combo interior. These will go into the Ricer because of the Special Interior I installed and the door seals are trashed.

You're probably looking for the Black Inner/Outer version.

I might have a set of all black door seals. I'd need to look. Again....wouldn't be cheap. Your best bet is the yard in that car if they're cheap enough and in good shape.

They definitely look a lot better than mine. But the DASHsss, no cracks!!!!!!!!, the doors are in very good shape, not faded at all, cant believe they destroy the car in a frontal accident. It has the 3.5 engine in it, sunroof and the OTIS, I think, the rear view mirror is different too. Has the vanity sun shades. Getting those too. Does the OTIS works on my car?, I think it has the garage door opener in it. I know it will not give me any information but at least I would like to get the garage door opener if it is possible.

Even the carpet looks brand new, no stains or dirt!!!!!, too bad is the one with the center console.

Hello guys, just came back from work. This morning I drove to Tallahassee and hit the jackpot. Was able to get all the door panels and all the seals. All look almost brand new. On line each panel door cost from 200 to 400 depending on trim. I was able to get all of that and the 2 sun shades that have the vanity lights, an electrical rear view mirror for 228 dollars. The lady gave me a military discount and I got all for 180 out the door. I think I did pretty good. Tomorrow Im going back with a friend to get the dash. Does anyone have pictures that come with the instructions that Terry provided, It will help a lot. There are a lot of pieces that I can't tell what is what in the instructions.

I will take picture this weekend of all the items.

Take care Leo
